Gungi was a maleWookieeJedi youngling who was training to become a Jedi in the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars. During the war, Gungi and a group of five other younglings, led by Ahsoka Tano, traveled to Ilum to participate in the Gathering; an ancient Jedi ritual that proved a youngling's readiness to become a Padawan learner. While on Ilum, the younglings were instructed by Jedi MasterYoda to enter a Crystal Cave and find their kyber crystals, which were necessary for the younglings to construct their first lightsabers. Each crystal in the cave was specific to one individual, and Gungi found his crystal on an island across a body of water within the cave. In order to get to his crystal, Gungi had to wait for the water to freeze so that it was safe to cross, and he was later commended by Master Yoda on his patience. While on their way back to Coruscant aboard the Crucible, the Jedi's ship was attacked by the pirateHondo. Though the younglings escaped the pirates, Ahsoka Tano was captured, and Gungi and his youngling friends traveled to Florrum to save her. After an attack on Hondo and his men by General Grievous, the Jedi and the pirates worked together and escaped the planet on the Slave I, which was in Hondo's possession.
